on the campaign trail, erick, paul ryan, the republican vice presidential nominee, he's making some serious accusations against joe biden. but joe biden is responding. listen to what joe biden said today. >> for the previous eight years all the policies that congressman ryan voted for and governor romney said he supported, all those policies in a mere eight years, they doubled the national debt. they doubled the national debt from what they inherited in 2001. >> he's right on that because the debt was about $5 trillion when president bush took office, more than $10 trillion when he left office. i think he's referring to the two tax cuts that weren't paid for, the precipitation drug benefits that weren't paid for, two wars, iraq and afghanistan that weren't paid for that caused so much, at least 80% or 90% of that debt. >> well, you know, i actually don't think the wars caused added as much, but a lot of stuff did. here's a fact as well, yes, president bush left office with a double national debt. here's another fact the democrats don't like. president obama has added more to the national de
frank. paul ryan was very frank over the weekend in saying the ticket has had a tough couple weeks. when you have a tough couple weeks you're enthusiasm level can decline. a good performance in a presidential debate can gin party enthusiasm. that may happen on wednesday for either side. we'll have to see what transpires in the debate. jenna: we always have to wait to actually talk about it until thursday morning. >> that's right. jenna: let me go back to that appearance point that you made. just by having mitt romney on stage with the president, many say that is what is going to make him look more presidential as you mentioned maybe create more support or inspire certain folks out there. "real clear politics" had an interesting article and unnamed democrat was quoted and i will quote him to you or her to you, larry because i would like your opinion on this. saying this is not a debate. this is a beauty pageant. people like a candidate through the heart, not through the mind this election is now about character and not about the economy. what do you think about, that, larry, a beauty page
ryan, the vice presidential nominee, has actually helped romney's efforts to win the white house or wound up hurting romney's efforts to win the white house. where do you see it? >> well, i've been a big alarmist on the ryan question from the beginning. i thought it was a mistake to choose him. i thought it was a mistake even before choosing him to bolt this campaign to the ryan plan. the romney campaign needs to be about jobs and growth. the decision to make this campaign about medicare and medicaid which is what you do when you adopt the ryan plan much less put ryan on the ticket is a big mistake. i think the campaign is really suffering for it. >> you think democrats down ballot as they say, senatorial candidates, congressional candidates, are happy, donna, that paul ryan is on the ticket with romney? >> absolutely. he gives definition to what the republicans actually stand for. i mean, basically they want to, you know, create another system for medicare. and as president obama and the vice president today spoke out also about social security. so democrats are along the ryan b

from romney before. we certainly heard it when they rolled out paul ryan, the number one deficit hawk in the house. we've heard this before. the question for romney is, will he stick? will he stay there, and will he continue to prosecute president obama's record and policies in a more robust way? because in the past what he's done is tried the tough new tone and not stayed there. megyn: well, he's taking it a step farther, right? it's not just about his policies, but it's about his ideology and an argument that he sees the world differently than mitt romney sees the world and, you know, there was that tape earlier, the 1998 tape of barack obama and talking about redistribution, and, you know, we've heard comments like that from the president before, and both men seem to agree that they have very different ideologies, but romney hasn't really gone after the president on that ground so strongly. republicans are going to respond to that, chris. but will, will independents, and have independents really heard a lot about that message thus far in this campaign? >> no. and think about this,
-- the reason we know paul ryan said if you tax, what would happen if you tax every millionaire all of their income? if you taxed every millionaire every penny of their income it would pay for the government for ten weeks' time. you can say you need to tax millionaires more but it won't do anything to the deficit unless you attack the real issue: spending. >> bob: they are not going to do the bush tax cut. there is something working on capitol hill, sequestration two. they will punt it down to the next congress. it guarantee you. >> kimberly: reaction to that? >> dana: well, last night, as i was taking care of jasper, of course, i see that president obama is going to be on "60 minutes." i thought it was a repeat. he has been on "60 minutes" more than steve cross has been on it. ten times, watered down the prime opportunity in the p.r. and the brand of "60 minutes." in addition, "60 minutes" said they did this interview with president obama on september # 2. it's very unusual they would not demand at least an opportunity to go back to president obama because so much happened between
never seen anything where paul ryan and barack obama agreed. >> rick: and we have wisconsin governor scott walker famous for being outset unions coming out in favor of the referee union. >> absolutely. wonderful field day for cartoonists. cartoons for referees that have no memory or let somebody else try it. it's a great cartoon. no debate here. >> is that political pandering all these politicians and rallying around a no-brainer cause? >> it seems like no-brainer but i never pretend anything that relates to sports. >> rick: oh, come on. >> let's pick up on that. "time magazine" called it pander bowl. there is something good that came out of this. i think we ought to consider replacement journalists. [ laughter ] >> anchors that three networks. "new york times" and "washington post" and get replacements and do better. >> we already have them, they are called blogers. >> you are seeing the power of social media. >> this in some measure a tweet driven story. everybody jumped in and they chose one particular medium to do it. >> rick: it demonstrates there is so much more that unites us?
